I have made a plugin for Obsidian called QuickAdd, which I'm very excited to show you.
What is QuickAdd? QuickAdd, at its core, is just a plugin for quickly and easily adding notes to your vault. This may be entirely new notes, or something that you want to take note of in an existing note.
It provides lots of ways to do that, and that's what I'm here to talk about today.
Why QuickAdd? QuickAdd can help you augment both your simple and advanced workflows.
Take a simple workflow. You want to add something to your daily note — but you're in the middle of writing something else and don't want to interrupt your flow by going into your daily note and back. You can use QuickAdd to add it to the daily note without ever leaving your note or moving your cursor. And I'll show you how.
Yes, there is a plugin called
Advanced Obsidian URI which allows for this. But I have been considering adding the feature to QuickAdd itself, which would allow me more control - so I can add more features and such.
Yes, just click on it.
Templater works differently from QuickAdd, although many features overlap.
Since QuickAdd supports Templater templates, you can use (almost) all Templater features through QuickAdd.
How both are best used depends on your use case. I can't really answer what you can't do - it depends on what you actually _do_ want to do.
Maybe. I considered calling it Engine when I started creating it, which would probably be a more fitting name.
I just want it to be the best plugin it can be. I have a massive backlog of things I want to do (for all my plugins), but unfortunately, I have more ideas than I have time.
I don't really understand this question, unfortunately. Sorry!
Sure, you could create a template for that. It would be similar to the one I showed for Kanban cards.
